There is a feature that I would like to see provided in WordPress where I can have an official permalink for the articles as what is currently in use. But I would like to create an "alternate" permalink which can be a shortened version of the standard permalink. This is especially as each article has an official permalink of <blog-name>/<year>/<month-number>/<post-title> and each page has <blog-title>/page-master-group>/page-group>/<page-title>. Here, I could have an alternate permalink which is simply <blog-name>/<post-title> or <blog-name>/<page-title> which could make it easier to publish references to posts or pages. There could be ways of handling index crawlers that could be stymied by alternate permalinks.
